I have a job that means walking frequently, often for long distances over crap terrain. Lately, my left heel has been hurting like a sumbitch, and the other day, I noticed how absolutely loose it was in the heel, like, to the point of my heel slapping against in the inside. Well, this weekend I got to looking at the tag sewn inside, and damn if it ain't a EE/Wide fit shoe and the other is medium (the width I wear). I pointed it out to my wife today, and she asked to see both boots, and not only is it a wide, it's damn size bigger. She asks me if I didn't check both shoes when I bought them (expensive Rocky boots) and I say why would I do that, the size is written on the side of the box. That answer earned me a dismissive chuckle and a pat on the head while I jammed two spare insoles into the left boot.
